2. Melt and Pour

This is the easiest method and ideal for beginners who are starting to experiment with making their own soap. Essentially, you gently heat a shop-bought soap bar until it melts. An easy way is to heat the soap in a crockpot, or over low heat in a pan. Once melted, add your choice of ingredients. Popular options are essential oils, dried herbs or flowers, and colors. Finally, the melted soap is poured into a mold and leave at room temperature to set.
